Trying out MS Word for android tablet. It looks pretty easy to use and has a nice ebook reading mode.
It also offered a very easy option for connecting to dropbox
I have been using SoundCloud for a while now as a way of improving my ukulele playing.
The latest app however, no longer supports commenting. Huh! I know right? I can’t even reply to other people who leave comments on my recordings without going to the website.
So I went looking for an alternative because I always like to try new things anyway. Audioboo – now Audioboom – popped into my twitter stream from someone talking about using it with students to record podcasts from field trips.
So here is one I made earlier. The Android app for this also does not seem to support commenting. I also cannot get the app to work on my Acer Iconia tablet. Just crashes. But it’s OK on my Samsung phone.
More experimenting to be done with this I think.
During the week I met with some of the Bond University Women’s Network organisers to share our experiences with Twitter.
On the 19th of September they are hosting an event (Speak Up Forum) where we are going to experiment with social media as a way to introduce another dimension into the BUWN experience for members and others to share ideas and speak up about issues affecting them.
So we went around the table and talked about the things we knew about twitter (very limited number of characters, lots of rubbish on there) and what we didn’t know about twitter (how do hashtags work, how to have an effective network focusing on big issues and not just cat pictures, what’s an RT and an MT).
